Hometown: Derby, Kansas
Position: Tight End
Rivals Ranking: 3-star
Recruited by: Derek Lewis
Notable: Goolsby was named to the All-State team in Kansas after leading Derby High School to a state championship as a senior. Goolsby is a versatile offensive weapon at 6-4, 221 pounds. He’s a receiver first and is a good fit for Kurt Roper’s offense.
Goolsby tallied 621 receiving yards as a senior.
He enrolled early at the University of Florida and is getting a head start on the rest of the 2014 recruiting class. In the past, Will Muschamp has been reluctant to play tight ends who have struggled with blocking but with Roper bringing a spread offense to Gainesville, there could be early playing time for Goolsby, even as he adjusts to the college game and learns to block.
Quotable: Goolsby spoke with Andrew Spivey before enrolling at Florida this past January and told Gator Country what his goals were for when he got to campus.
When I get to Florida I want to learn the playbook and gain some weight and hopefully get faster.”
